Pie Homage


Today's Bizarro is brought to you by The Center for the Study of Hitchcock Homages.

I've seen a lot of graphic caption balloon puns over the years, have even done some myself, so I tend to shy away from them. But when "my friend, Derek, gave me the idea for this joke," I liked it and decided the addition of the pie chunks made it worth doing. That's me and CHNW (note the monogram), in case you have some kind of rare vision disorder that prevents you from spotting the friggin' obvious.

And yes, that's vegan pie. Duh.

That's pretty cool how you gave credit in the caption, without being too obvious.

That's just clever any way you look at it!

what an awesome autobiographical homage! i like that it takes for granted the accessibility of reading someone else's thought bubble as means of proper communication. but the fact that the bubble is littered with pie makes the image that much funnier.. well done. (yea i know, way to reiterate your comic in a completely un-funny way.)

Looking at it, this cartoon is funny and clever, and also brings back a (horrible) childhood memory. I was eating dinner at my grandparent’s home in the country. (I was very young about 7 or 8) and my uncle (the loud one I’ll call him) saw me reach for the bowl of potatoes, while I was still chewing something. Well, he let out the loudest yell; “Finish eating what’s in your mouth before grabbing more food!” he bellowed. I was devastated, and left the table, went outside on the porch and pouted until my grandmother came out and told me he was only teasing. I never forgot that, and I don’t think I’ve ever grabbed for anything else while still chewing, since then. I know this doesn't really relate to this cartoon, but thanks Dan, as being able to speak about this has been very therapeutic:))

I came to the blog specifically
to say that when I saw this comic in the paper, I spotted the "CHNW" and immediately knew what it meant and was SO PROUD OF MYSELF.

I feel like I know you guys!
